Would it be possible to build a kind of Hyper-Prezi presentation?

I realized that Prezi is not just the ideal tool for presenting knowledge, but also for showing the connections between different presentations. This is especially helpful for doing a series of presentations like in a course at university. Although I could do this in one really large Prezi-presentation, the presentations would be much easier to maintain if I could build a lot of small presentations and combine them to one big hyper-presentation. For this hyper presentation I might also be necessary to define more than one path to follow.

It would be interesting to see a multiple-path prezi, where not only you can program 3 or 4 paths through your presentation, for different audiences, but that you can even select different directions at "node"-points in your prezi. Like you have a startpoint, and you select Path A, then after 3 transitions you are at a node-point and can choose with some keybinds (up, down, left, right) in which direction to continue, depending on how the audience receives your presentation. So not only multiple paths programmable, but also connected with nodes to take a direction depending on how the presentation goes, especially useful for interactive presentation, where you want the audience to take part. Like in lectures and lessons at schools or uni's.

I think it would be easier to use a wiki and embed prezis onto pages. I have done this for my courses and it works great. Students can also then make prezis and embed them as well. So, the wiki is the central location with links out to prezis

I'd love to see the ability to "deep link" to a particular object/view on a Prezi. Then I could clearly illustrate the links between the concepts I'm presenting...double click (or some other action) on one object in one Prezi, and it takes me (like a portkey) to another particular place/view in a different Prezi.
Please consider adding it...even if you have to make a link target manually, such as clicking on the plus sign and "get link to this object" ...it would probably look something like http://prezi.com/rand0m-lett3rs/#1525 for object 1525...customizing these would be helpful too, but you can use a custom URL shortener in the meantime. Then, you need to allow people to make objects (e. g. images) hyperlinks, and you've got a working system!

I'd like to be able to run a master prezi with links to child prezis. From a business standpoint, this would let me customize a deck using ready-made child prezi's. I'd be totally happy with a fade in to the 0 point on the path of the child presentation and a fade out to the last position within the parent.

More immediately, I'd be able to use it at church. We could use this to replace powerpoint and add some zing to song lyrics used during services. A hyper-prezi would enable me to call on previously used materials like song lyrics without rewriting them into the parent or just switching screens during the presentation.

Just a humble suggestion. Taking the comments for a prezi and linking to regions ive created this:

http://www.slidedynamic.com/prezi-dyn...

Small one here http://www.slidedynamic.com/online-demo to see what i mean

Ive tested it upto a prezi with 500 path nodes/points but its unlimited really
You can select only the Path points you want or all them. You can customize the text displayed and the teleport/navigation is minimal as its dropdown. You can also customise the colors so they are more in keeping with your design and branding. It works offline for mac and windows or online in websites, wordpress google blog etc etc. Just an idea

PS this has nothing to do with our powerpoint add-in its native prezi and there is nothing to add to prezi

I received a 404 error when I tried the links above.

Here is a demo of a Prezi with 370 path points and random links. You can select these and name them if you try the demo

Question for you: I just made a document using the online path links. The links work great when I view the presentation from the editor, but when I download or share a copy, where the 'click me' buttons used to be are those bubbles that say downloading. They never load. Is my presentation too large? I've uploaded about 15 pages from a pdf document with images. All those pages have loaded. It's just the click me buttons. Thanks.

The online ones are free..they now support upto 500 path points..so a pretty mega prezi. the offline version for 150..is 9 euro to buy...we need a make a living. also we are just about to release a new set and they are transparent :) so you can place them over anything in your prezi.

I think this suggestion could nicely combine with the suggestion named “Possibility to have context while zooming”. You could use the context frame to maintain the bigger context of the HyperPrezi.

Though I love the sophisticated ideas in this thread, having worked in software I know that it is crucial to control the scope of feature changes. Here is a very stripped-down suggestion that might help a lot of people:

Create a permanent unique ID for each object (or at least each frame) in a Prezi. (More likely, expose an object unique ID model you already have. Prezi developers, are you listening?)
Allow users to jump to those objects through HTML hyperlinks referencing objects by their unique ID.

Example in use: A teacher creates a single prezi for a course. The (long) path covers many lessons. Each week the teacher sends an email to students with a link to the Unique ID of the frame at the front of the relevant portion of the prezi's path.

Another example in use: A sales manager adds a new product description into the company's standard pitch. To highlight the change, she sends email with a link directly to the changed portion of the Prezi.

Another example in use: a nonprofit organization wants to highlight its work through success stories, while keeping the big picture in view. Using twitter and Facebook, they promote specific frames of their overall prezi, focusing on two or three per week. (example: http://bit.ly/edprezi )

Please do NOT create this solution referencing the object's PATH number. In practice, Prezis evolve, and these links that refer explicitly to the path number end up creating problems!

Ok its not and answer but might prove useful
hyperstyle style prezi
http://www.slidedynamic.com/prezidyna...
So this will work for Download Prezi on Mac and PC its Free
Bit more info
http://www.slidedynamic.com/prezidyna...
its free, unofficial and not supported but it works so i hope it might be useful
1.as i say its not meant to be a solution
2.its free (i'm doing my best)
3.yes its not ideal as its based on views
4. The config form kinda makes it sort of easy to adjust if you change path view ordering)
5. You can do a text search for main navigation links for large prezi's upto 500 path points

I'd really like this for business. Having multiple paths to be able to create an overview, then spin off into either business or technical prezis would be great.

Having multiple paths could open up Prezi to facilitating explorations of complex issues rather than simply giving linear presentations, effectively turning Prezi into a collaborative living sketchbook.

I would like to have the ability to be able to hyper link within a frame of text to say a Bible passage and then click a link in the passage to come back to the frame I was in originally and continue on with the presentation.

I am trying to develop a prezi that is reflecting a complex idea (non linear) with multi paths (non linear).

It is around cultural change - so please sympathise - but it has a basis that is underpinned by a model of working, key functions and principles - all of which link. Each principle has 'practice' that can be viewed in either academic or user friendly terms. The language (as always with cultural change) is an added dimension.

Hence - I would like a hyper presentation. One where a master presentation could hold a number of smaller presentations - I think the idea of wiki sounds good. I am currently developing a number of web sites that link and hold different prezi. Each cover a single element. and will have (as I have not completed this yet) a prezi or a number of prezi explaining elements.

Wow if a hyper presentation could have a search function! That would be truly amazing.

So basically I am trying to put my thesis for my PHD into a a format that takes complex ideas (which are really simple in my head) and get others to get them, get why they are important and travel through the links using technology.
Also using collaborative research so that individuals can input into the growing knowledge base.

Hey ho the wind and the rain. A very excited person on a Sunday in the UK.
